New Delhi, Jul 22 (UNI) Hailing the victory of the UPA Government in the trust vote, Samajwadi Party chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav tonight clearly hinted that his party might go in for an alliance with the Congress in the coming elections.

''This friendship will continue in future,'' said Mr Yadav when asked to react to the Government winning the trust vote in which his party has played a crucial role.

Mr Yadav, however, showed no eagerness to join the government.

When asked about it, he said,'' We have not given our support to the goverment for any selfish motives or any gains, we took our decision just out of conviction,'' he said.

It is not just a victory of the Samajwadi Party but of the people of the whole country, the SP chief added.

He said the stand taken by his party on the nuclear deal and support to the UPA Government enjoyed the backing of intelectuals, artistes and so many Indians who were settled abroad.

''I am flooded with congratulatory messages and phone calls from them,'' he said.
